hope 2013 is a good one. host: let's hear from steve. you are on the democrat's lead. caller: i would like to say merry christmas to you and to all the united states of america. i am actually very pessimistic about a deal being struck. when you look at the republican party and their entire congress who comes out with a statement that this country does not have a revenue problem, it is just an outright lie. if you look at the facts, 32% of our manufacturing base has been gutted and sold to china, india, any foreign country that has cheap labor. the top patriotic american companies are parking their profits and offshore accounts so they do not have to pay a fair share of their taxes. the bottom line is since the late '70s, the wealthiest 2% in this country are making 25 times their wealth that they made a black -- back then. there are only paying 40% more in taxes. this country is doomed if we do not start putting terrace of the imports coming into this country. the republican party is selling you an outright lie. thank you. host: let's show you a facebook posting. the economist and pro

when he got successful he moves all his company over to china, giving chinese people jobs. if steve jobs was born in china he wouldn't even have a garage therefore he wouldn't be able to create the apple computer. so i just think we just don't do enough for the people of this country. and the people who are in position to create jobs and do this do not reinvest in the country. therefore i don't think they should get tax breaks. if you want to give these corporate giants tax breaks then give it to those who want to invest in the country, who want to create jobs here, not overcease, and they think try to think of ways to get their money over there into here lower than say the american businessman paying 35%. guest: i mean, i understand your frustration. i think part of it is that the corporate tax code is a mess. we clearly need to fix it in a way that a lot of the politicians talk about fixing it in a revenue neutral way which doesn't add anything to the deficit discussion. it doesn't help make lowering future deficits any easier. so there are some things we need to change about the

] so it seems than that this is emblematic that this really is an american tapper steve and we really ought to share in some ways in obama's story. i wanted you to have the last word about what more in what we might tell her children about this history and connectedness in spite of all of this ugliness in many uncomfortable ways. >> i think we should talk about it. it's hard to talk about but the reverberations from any and i think i'm a communicator, i'm a writer so maybe a bit too much emphasis and hope the dialogue. talking about how some understanding the history helps. i hope that interest in michelle obama's family might bring a little interest in history too. >> well, we will applaud her in just a moment. [applause] you have another opportunity but now it's your turn. anyone who has a question or comment, please don't offer both. if you would like to say something, you can have your moment. the microphone is open. if you have a question, please keep it brief. anyone? this is the first at the schaumbur

spritz, drizzle remaining over your area, but again, it's passing. splash and dash, as steve likes to call it off to the east, east of san jose. milpitas seeing higher elevation rain and snow. for most of us, mainly dry, mostly cloudy, a little breezy in some cases, making temperatures feel all the more cooler. 46 degrees right now in san francisco. 47 in oakland. 48 in napa, which is warmer than yesterday. but with this added breeze here, anywhere from 5 to 10 to 15 miles per hour. 13 reported in fairfield, 10 at sfo, 15 to 20 at half moon bay. you can expect temperatures to actually feel anywhere from 5 to 10 degrees cooler than what i just showed you. feels more like 30s and low 40s out there, even though the readings are telling us mid to upper 40s. here is your forecast. we'll be with mostly cloudy skies for the morning hours. for the afternoon, we are partly cloudy to mostly sunny. now we're into sunday. sunday's going to be mostly clear and cool as well. now we are into new year's eve. by monday, 6:00 notice we've got gray skies, another weak storm that's riding right along

a moment. we also have pimco's mow hammel el-erian. >>> steve sedgwick is standing by in london right now. how are things standing by there? >> it's a very quiet session as we saw last week on the u.s. and the european incidentsies. despite the fact that the vix in the united states and the v-stocks and the various volatility measures on this side of the atlantic remain elevated. despite that, we're not seeing a lot of oscillation on the back of, as you said, the fiscal cliff and concerns that we may fall off. does that mean that people are getting complacent? they think even though we might not get a deal in the next 24 hours, we will get a deal fairly imminently. in the meantime, though, this is what we've got in terms of the major european indices. that will open and the germans will come to that in a few minutes' time it has been up year-to-date around about 6% and that makes the ftse 100 a real lagger compared with some of its european peers. a laggard, as well, compared to the cac 40. we have no fiscal cliff deal as of yet and it is up 1%. that means the cac 40, the french equity ma

is on the independent line from colorado. caller: good morning, steve. i listened to it the myopic dogma in this segment over and over. the only people i can blame on this are the american people. the people who sit here and listen to these guys that are extremists and and they vote him into office -- them into office. i hear people say let's get rid of epa. if you look at how much epa takes out of our budget, that's like worrying about nothing gary people need to turn off the tv and start studying more. crack some books. look at economic spirit trickle-down economics does not work. name a country where it has worked? maybe estonia. but it's not working in greece. i heard a great saying that says when time gets tough, everyone is a keynesian. turn off the tv. not c-span of course. but turn off the news channels that are just cramming this stuff, and get involved in this before you formulate an opinion. i think we would be voted into office smarter, better people that are not tea party extremists. how about if on the democratic side grover norquist had said never cut any spending? i'm going to sign a bil
